“The driver Clink and Wendy made a wonderful team. The group were fantastic and the combination made this a wonderful holiday never to be forgotten.”
Sarah's review for another Explore tour
5 - Excellent
“The trip notes recommend that travellers should take US dollars. South African Rand it a lot more useful as their are limited chances to change money during the trip. Rand it accepted everywhere.”
Anne's review for another Explore tour
5 - Excellent
“I would recommend this trip - it's a moving experience done well. March feels like a good time to go - although I think we were very lucky with the temperature. The trees are getting quite tall now in the exclusion zone and I can only imagine that once the leaves start to form much of the buildings are obscured. It was well worth getting the early flight and having some time on the morning of the last day in order to do some independent exploring over and above the formal itinerary.”
Select Tour Version:
Our trip starts at Faro airport from where we drive due west for approximately one hour and a half to the coastal town of Sagres. As we arrive early there will be plenty of time to explore this historically important port, linked to the early Portuguese explorers. It was here that Prince Henry the Navigator built his navigation school during the 'Age of the Discoveries'. His fortress, Fortaleza de Sagres rebuilt in the 18th century, can also be seen from our hotel. Today Sagres is a small tranquil town with a picturesque harbour and several nearby beaches. Within a short walking distance of our hotel is a choice of local restaurants and bars, and a town beach.
